WEST PALM BEACH, FL, July 06, 2012 — Engineered Tax Services (ETS) has bolstered its deep technical team with the addition of Kreig Mitchell to their advisory board. Mr. Mitchell is considered one of the foremost experts in the country in the area of research and development tax credits. Mr. Mitchell is a tax attorney with broad and deep experience in all aspects of federal and state research tax credits and incentives. He is also a noted expert in tax controversy matters.
During his career, Mr. Mitchell has worked as a tax attorney in private practice, a tax consultant for a research tax credit firm, and an attorney and appeals officer for the IRS. He has advised clients on all aspects of research tax credit matters—from tax returns through to tax litigation.
